Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a cryptographic protocol that
provides security and data integrity for data communications over a
network. By encrypting your Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web
Services or NAS with SSL, you make your data and your network more
secure and reliable.
Microsoft Dynamics NAV supports SSL authentication. The server
authenticates itself to the client, but the client does not
authenticate itself to the server. When the web service client
connects to the Microsoft Dynamics NAV server, the server replies
by sending its digital certificate to the client. This certificate
contains the server's public encryption key and the name of the
authority that granted the certificate. The client verifies the
certificate using the authority's public key.
